Dr. Samuel K. Andoh Selected as the International Expert for Ghana
The School of Business is pleased to announce that Dr. Samuel K. Andoh, interim dean and professor of economics, was selected as the International Expert for Ghana by the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). As part of this prestigious position, Dr. Andoh researched and wrote a profile on the country’s management education structure.
The AACSB works to “connect educators, students, and businesses to achieve a common goal: to create the next generation of great leaders.” As an International Expert for this organization, Dr. Andoh worked with a number of universities in Ghana to compile a profile that reflected not only the nation’s business education programs, but also some general characteristics and demographics.
As part of this holistic report, Dr. Andoh discusses cultural aspects of Ghana’s history and evolution, including such dimensions as “individualism,” “indulgence,” “masculinity,” and “power distance.” These dimensions collectively inform an audience about Ghana’s cultural structure and development. The majority of the profile includes information about the colleges and universities in Ghana – those that offer business degrees and management education. While access to education and resources/support for universities are still issues within the country, there are a number of strong accredited programs as well.
Dr. Andoh is continuing his work on this project into the coming academic year, and the School of Business wishes him continued success with it, and with all future projects with the AACSB.
